I was just about to load this card up on blogger, and I lost my internet connection. So...finally I'm back online. (What would we do without the internet these days?)
So.... on to my card. I made this Summery card with the My Favorite Things "Hit the Beach" set that I won from Taylor. After doing Beate's challenge, I decided to do another "Joy-Fold. The sun is made with the new SU snow blossom punch. I just cut the "knobs" off, and sponged the edges of the Summer Sun card stock with Pumpkin Pie. The top layer of the sun is punched with the ¾" circle punch. I used Heat & Stick Powder to adhere the Dazzling Diamonds to the sun, and my Quickie Glue pen for the "rays". My little "scene" is stamped on watercolor paper, because I was going to use my re-inkers to color it. I changed my mind, and decided to use my Prismacolor & Pure Color Pencils with Gamsol instead. The "itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini" is colored with a Summer Sunish looking yellow, then dotted with my Signo White Gel Pen. I also highlighted some areas with my Stardust pen. The designer cloud paper is from Cosmo Cricket Storytime collection. The Primas are from a kit I purchased from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.
Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!
